José Ramón Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, also known as Blessed Miguel Pro was a Mexican Jesuit Catholic priest. Falsely accused in the bombing attempt on a former Mexican president, Miguel became a wanted man. Betrayed to the police, he was sentenced to death without the benefit of any legal process. On the day of his execution, Fr. Pro forgave his executioners, prayed, bravely refused the blindfold and died proclaiming, "Viva Cristo Rey", "Long live Christ the King!" Known for his religious piety and innocence, he was beatified by Pope John Paul II as a Catholic martyr on September 25, 1988.
